Quotes

Det. Chin Ho Kelly: Define "leverage."
Det. Steve McGarrett: Simple bait-and-trap. Wire up and undercover. Send him in.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Only one problem melihini. That might work well on the mainland. But we're on an island with under a million people. Which means the bad guys know the the good guys. So we need to look for our bait outside the box.
Det. Steve McGarrett: I take it, you got the perfect guy in mind.
Det. Chin Ho Kelly: Oh yeah!

Promising beginning
22 September 2010 | by (Calgary AB Canada) – See all my reviews

I watched this show with low expectations; I liked Jack Lord and Wo Fat and the theme song. The theme song made my day! The cast is amazing; great casting from the lead all the way through. Good solid character actors doing what they do best: act. The writing is perhaps a bit derivative but it rather has to be; there are only so many plots.but the cast and writers make the best of it. Sure it is an 'odd buddy' movie but also one mixed with a touch of "Magnificent Seven" or "Chichi no Samurai". The interaction between these folks and the rest of the cast, in fact all the interpersonal relations, are well written. Good human relations without soap opera. The sketching of what makes Hawaii different is very well done, much better indeed than what I recall of the Lord series. So it is a very promising beginning.
